Around one in four British voters believe Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn is personally antisemitic, according to a poll published by The Sun over the weekend.

This finding came as reports emerged that in 2012, Corbyn, then a parliamentary backbencher, attended a conference in Qatar at which Hamas leader Khaled Mashaal was also a guest — marking the latest in a number of recent revelations exposing apparent ties between Corbyn and Palestinian terror groups.

It was also reported on Monday, by i24 News, that Corbyn met with senior Hamas officials during a 2010 visit to the West Bank and failed to declare who funded the trip.

In the poll published by The Sun, nearly half of British voters expressed a belief that Labour had a serious antisemitism problem.

Furthermore, 37 percent of voters said the antisemitism issue made Corbyn unfit to be prime minister.
